Since our beginning in 1987 as the Nature Trust of New Brunswick (NTNB), our main goals have been to protect areas in New Brunswick that are ecologically significant, and to educate the people of New Brunswick about the province’s natural heritage and the importance of land conservation.

The Nature Trust is a charitable land trust dedicated to the acquisition of private lands in order to ensure that biological diversity is protected in perpetuity. To date, the Nature Trust has conserved thousands of acres of land throughout the province. It is our mandate to manage these lands while maintaining healthy ecosystems, biodiversity, and preserving native species. In addition, we examine areas with high ecological sensitivity, undertake outreach and education activities and promote landowner contact. We also promote sustainable stewardship practices and involve communities in the monitoring of our nature preserves.

Vision: The quality of life in New Brunswick is enhanced by a network of natural areas that are the finest examples of the province’s natural heritage – undeveloped and protected forever.
